he's more honest than Penello in interviews. So I give him that.

"I agree. We need to get better at chunking our games so the partial install allows game to start sooner," Spencer said on Twitter. His response went to a fan who said he might buy more games if installs didn't take 30 minutes. - 30 minutes before playing?

What is the average time for most of your installs anyway? What was your longest and shortest game to install?

Also supplement from a older topic. showing charts. By contrast you can start playing on PS4 after less than 60 seconds of install while it does the rest during playing.

I've played DR3, Forza 5, Ryse, CoD and BF4. I feel like Ryse didnt take all that long before I could play it.. the others were a good 20-30 minutes. By no means are those exact numbers.. just going off my memory.

Best way to install is to install OFFLINE, disconnected from Live and the net. That will install way faster. Also the progress percentage is so innacurate, you could be on 12% and then it will remain on 12% and 10 minutes later, complete 100%.

Desperate troll is desperate



Its so strange how trolls will casually make a topic asking things as if they are unbiased. Its like someone dressed as a bank robber is trying to make a withdrawl from their account.

A Microsoft exec said it. The troll TC decided to embellish it. All he had to do was the post the quote and ask the question to make the point. Instead he decides to push the issue way intro troll territory just so he can feel proud of himself. I mean, I get it. I remember being 14. I know what it's like to be irrelevant.


The install times are obviously too slow. COD took nearly 2 hours on launch day for me. Ryse took about 15 minutes. DR3, even with the 30 gig update, took about 30 minutes. This is obviously the fault of the aborted digital only, DRM stuff and will go away once people shut up and MS can bring that stuff back in a couple years.
